Paul, the Conandron is another of the many very choice plants which come from Japan. I have had it here both imported years ago and more recently from a local source but it is extremely dry sensitive and I lost it both times. Unlike Ramonda, it dies down in winter to a resting bud and I couldn't bring it out of that dorman state. would love to try again.

Brilliant plants everyone.

I have Clematis tenuifolia in a trough but it has only flowered once. How can I get it to flower?

The rest of my Conandron ramondoides plants is now in full flowers. I say the rest, because some of
them did not survive the last winter in the unheated alpine house. Try to do everything to keep these
fascinating plants in my collection. Many years ago I had plants from another clone which survived
even in the open garden.

Rudi, your Conandron ramondoidesa is such a special plant - I love the way it is flowering profusely high over the large leaves - what is its natural habitat in Japan - is it stream margins?

Robin, my literature says, that C.ramondioides grows in Japan on moist and moss
covered rocks which get dryer during winter.

I am so so jealous, Really like Dionysia Judith Bramley. If I had a alpine house like that I would never come out of it. What a display.
